Longtime local radio talker Doug McIntyre is leaving the morning slot at KABC 790 after tomorrow. Peter Tilden will take over for now. Orange County Register radio columnist Gary Lycan says that McIntrye is heading to New York to do a show leading in to Don Imus. Here's the email memo from KABC boss David G. Hall:
From: "David G Hall"

Subject: KABC Morning Drive
Doug McIntyre’s last morning show on KABC will be tomorrow morning.
Doug has been a huge part of KABC for nearly a decade. He will still be involved with both this radio station and Citadel in general, doing some work for WABC in New York in the short term, and working on a very exciting future project on KABC.
Peter Tilden will take over the KABC morning show starting Friday. Peter has been involved with this station in many different ways for the last 20 years, and has always had great ratings success and popularity with the KABC audience. Award winning news anchor Dave Williams will continue to do KABC’s morning news in the Peter Tilden show, and of course Capt. Jorge will do traffic and sports.
Please join me in thanking Doug for his effort and success in morning drive, and wishing Peter all the best as he starts his new role at TalkRadio 790 KABC!
